Poem Week: Featuring Kaladia B. Chaney

The ABC's of My Hope (An acrostic poem by Kaladia B. Chaney)

The ABC’s of My Hope

(An acrostic poem by Kaladia B. Chaney)

Always endeavoring to walk in integrity
Believing faithfully in a God I cannot see;
Caring enough for my well being creates a better me.
Deciding to live my life thoroughly.

Energized with purpose I can face my days with peace
Following my passion to live throughout eternity;
Growing everyday – spirit, mind, and body
Having a hope that’s greater than life itself brings clarity.

Influenced by my parents – their values I uphold
Joining their stand to maintain a sacred legacy;
Keeping the faith I am bold
Lowering down I bow to His majesty.

Morals are not enough I must walk righteously
Negotiating is not an option in the hand I’ve been dealt you see;
Opportunities I am given I must choose wisely
Prepared to accept the consequences whatever they may be.

Quivering in my mind battling soul against spirit – spirit against soul
Rationalizing where this rabbit whole ends I don’t know;
Satisfied in Him I gain the promise victory
Trusting Him with my all I experience prosperity.

Ultimately, I shall persevere it is my destiny
Victory! I cry aloud. Oh taste and see;
Wash me cleanse me and I shall be
How eXcellent is Your name Oh how I praise thee

Yes, this is the hope I hold on to dearly,
Zealous till Christ be formed in me.
